Please be aware, sometimes these doctors and hospitals like to go test crazy, and perform unnecessary testing. Just because U have insurance. There's unnecessary testing and unnecessary medications. Do the research before taking a pill for anything. We are too quick to accept a pill for everything. Pharmaceuticals are here to make clients not patients.

I can understand being scared! I had the nurse hold my hand during mine. It is a very useful test. A person can have lesions and it not be MS but a different autoimmune disease, Spinal tap makes sure which one it is so you can get correct medical treatment and correct medication. There are people that have more than one autoimmune disease at the same time helps to rule that out too. so please don't be scared ok they can always put you to sleep for this test..
